Shut up bladder!

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

$54 bucks to keep your race lead? No brainer.

Seriously? How do they plan a race that goes for half the day and expect nobody to have to go to the bathroom?

If it is 104 degrees and you aren't peeing once per hour or so, you are threatening your health. Piss on them.

All bike racers should carry a small black screen built into their cycling shorts which when unfolded allows them to relieve themselves discretely. Something like a small tent. Of course, nothing can be done about the sound of tricking wastewater so parents of children who witness such events must be advised to avert their eyes, and cover their ears...but then again they're Aussie's so 'taking a piss' shouldn't be a big deal.

Imagine, peeing when you have to pee being unseemly behavior.

I've heard you can order extra-small so you should still be okay.

Ouch!

Perhaps it's just easier to wear a catheter and have a small drain tube routed underneath the BB. This design could be for either gender.

That'd certainly discourage drafting...
